The family story of Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colorado, keeps getting stranger. Now it involves a DNA test and a former pro wrestler.
The test concludes Stan Lane is not Boebert’s biological father. That was the claim of her mother, Shawn Roberts Bentz, going back to the late 1980s.
Bentz claimed she had a short fling with Lane. That led to a court fight, with Lane ordered to take a paternity test in 1990.
That test, using a blood sample, cleared Lane as well. That meant he didn’t have to pay child support.
But then a North Carolina laboratory worker who took the test was found guilty of taking a bribe.
Bentz demanded a second test using DNA. Lane, 69, agreed to it in mid-May, after Boebert filed for divorce.
Lane told Wrestling News and related websites in a statement that Boebert now has apologized to him on behalf of her mother.
“This situation and the numerous false claims made against me over the years has been stressful for me and my family,” Lane said.
According to the Daily Mail, Boebert confirmed the apology to The Daily Beast.
“I personally have never publicly claimed he was my father,” she said. “But certainly, that allegation is out there.”
Lane wrestled in the National Wrestling Alliance as part of the Midnight Express tag team. He became a powerboat racing announcer after retiring from wrestling.
Boebert’s life away from Congress has exploded into the spotlight since she filed for divorce in late April.
Knewz reported two weeks ago that Boebert denies cheating on her husband Jayson with a Christian country singer.
“There is absolutely nothing romantic between Sean Feucht and me, nor has there been,” Boebert said of the rumors.
Feucht threatened legal action against media outlets that did not retract the report.
